View Full Version : Boat Dock Pipe Paint?

04-11-2009, 01:22 PM
Iím finally getting around to building a new boat lift and decided not to have the pipes hot dipped galvanized for cost reasons. I need to paint the pipes and was wondering if I should use a special type of paint or just spray paint them. All help greatly appreciated.

I am painting my steel frame docks as well and have the same question. i came across this http://www.askthebuilder.com/B140_Paint_and_Primer_for_Steel.shtml

I would use an oil based exterior primer and paint to protect the metal.
